Zhao Li Ying becomes producer as The Legend of Shen Li begins filming

Impressive! I knew she was playing the female lead but she’s also listed as producer for The Legend of Shen Li (与凤行) at today’s booting ceremony! Hopefully, this means that she can have some control on reigning in the original novel story!

Based on the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (author of Ostentatious Zhao Yao, The Blue Whisper), The Legend of Shen Li follows the story of a strong-willed “Prince” of the demon world, Shen Li. To clarify, the “prince” here refers to our female lead, who is not blood-related to the demon royalty but a title given to her for her successes in battles and military prowess. Unluckily on her 1000th birthday, she receives a degree decree to get married to the Heavenly Emperor’s grandson, Fu Rong. The guy’s Casanova reputation forces her to run away. However, during her escape she’s injured and returns to her true form – a phoenix. The bad luck comes her way as she’s hunted down by a group of hunters. They pluck her golden feathers and sell her on the street vendor as a hairless chicken. LOL. That image is hella funny. She’s bought by a sickly scholar, who is actually a powerful God in Heaven who was bored (or whatever) and decided to enter the human realm with his memory intact. He can see that she’s a phoenix demon but doesn’t let her know about his knowledge or identity, in order to play tricks on her.

Director is Deng Ke (My Heroic Husband) and scriptwriter is given to Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (original novel author). Sounds good!
